soldiers guarding walls, and pat downs for all visitors n cairo the embassy hides behind giant bricks. a new travel alert that warns of atrack, means americans like this 27-year-old need to take small precautions. >> you hear that there might be a threat, so i don't go downtown to where most things seem to be isolated. i don't go near the embassy for any reason. >> it started with the u.s. intercepted al-qaeda messages about attacking american interests, like embassies. one official calls it a very active plot, led by osama bin laden's personal secretary. they have been tracking chatter, but in recent days one official said a lot started blinking red. so now look at the map. every embassy that's supposed to be open right now is shut, and right in the middle cairo. americans here keeping their heads down. >> keep as low a profile as i can. obviously i'm a sizable guy that looks like what i am, an american. and that said, i don't walk into
harm's way intentionally. avoid large crowds where i can. >> meanwhile, president obama's top military advisor and chairman of the giants chiefs of staff, general martin dempsey, said the threats intercepted are significant and officials are taking the threats seriously. on" this week "he sat down in an exclusive interview with martha raditz. he said how a possible terrorist attack could be carried out, he said the threats appear to be far reaching. >> a significant threat strain and we are reacting to it. >> is the threat to blow up an embassy, consulate or something else? >> that part is unspecified burke the intent is clear. >> the intent is to what? >> the intent is to attack western, not just u.s. interests. >> a global travel alert remains in effect through the end of this month. a building demolition ended

spreading gay propaganda. she's not the only one. madonna also did in a concert in st. petersburg last year. >> people have the same rights. >> now eoth of them are facing punishment. technically because their visa's didn't allow them to work in russia. but the investigation came at the urging of the official who wrote the anti-gay law. >> i think the visa charges are really a shout across the bow for lady gaga, ma done huh and other international performers who are thinking about taking up the gay rights agenda. >> that has been popular in russia, a country where homosexuals are often the target of violence. it's been so popular, the law has been adopted nationally. violators, including foreigners, face fines, deportation, even jail. in the united states they have called for a boycott of russian products, even vodka.
some have called for a boycott of the olympics that will take police in sochi. russia said they would suspend the law for athletes during the games. russia hasn't announced plans to prosecute the pop stars, but if convicted they could face deep fines or be banned from russia. if they are charged, other big acts may cancel plans to perform in russia. so far no response yet from lady gaga or madonna, but we will probably hear soon. the obama administration has handed cupertino-based apple a victory by overturning a ban on the import and sale of older apple devices. the ban would have made selling imported apple i-phone 4s, 3gs and older models illegal. it was ordered by the u.s. international trade commission in an ongoing feud between apple

the transit agency's two largest unions and management will resume negotiations this morning. it's all in an effort to avoid a strike that could cripple the commute for thousands of people in the bay area as soon as tomorrow morning. key issues on the table include wages, pension, worker safety and healthcare costs. both bart and union negotiators are saying all sides are working to keep the trains running. >> the union is working very diligently to get an agreement. we do not, we don't want a service disruption in the bay area. we want the district to bargain as hard as we are and to recognize the 400,000 people that we carry, as well as members of the community, have a vested interest in what's going on, and they need to act responsibly to ensure they are taking this into account. >> we have no problem working on a day-to-day basis as long as we continue to meet and there's a chance of something happening. >> bart management said they remain hopeful that they can reach an agreement with the union before the current contract expires at midnight tonight.
about 400,000 people ride bart each day. many of them were forced to drive during the strike in july. that was a holiday week so there were fewer people on the roads at the time. if a strike happens tomorrow, metro transportation officials expect 10% more traffic on the roads. if bart workers do walk off the job, bay area transit agencies say they will try to add additional service to accommodate all the stranded commuters. a.c. transit will supplement transbay lines with additional buses to and from san francisco to the best of their ability. they carried a bulk of riders a month ago during that strike. san francisco bay ferry will add additional boats. san trans will add service from daly city and other places to
muni's 14 lines. they are asking commuters to please carpool in and out of the city. and as the threat of a bart strike looms, a lot of people are wondering how they are going to get to work. well, it turns out there is an app for that. they are even offering incentives for people willing to step up and drive carpools this week. abc7 news reporter johnathan bloom has that story and the information you may need. cars backed up for miles as workers picketed in front of. bart stations a few weeks ago. it is a mess laura remembers all too well. >> it was ridiculous. they were backed up so far back, it was unbelievable how many people were still driving into san francisco that week. >> commuters loaded up on buses and ferries and lined up on street corners for casual carpools. laura did something she's never done before, drive a carpool. >> i agreed to help people get to the office >> laura found passengers on a mobile app called carma, c-a-r-m-a. it's like carpooling without the mess at the curb. >> you can check out their profile and look at their photos and you can choose somebody and say they are going to my building.
>> it was around for a while. during the last bart strike it all changed. >> our usage went up 9,000 percent and we maintained about 30 percent of that usage. >> it may be because they raffled off helicopter rides to a few lucky users. they posted this video on youtube. this time they are running a more practical promotion. >> pick people up and carry them into the city and we will give them $25 toward parking in the city. that happens every day next week, strike or no strike. >> to qualify you have to pick them up at one of their special locations. the speer and full some or ashby, pleasant hill or hayward bart stations. there will be other transportation app running promotion. sidecar waved their fee for drivers the last strike and lift is about to announce something. carma is different from those apps because it's not like hiring a driver. it's traditionally carpooling where you start and end in the same place and pay some money for gas. >> you are not going to make a lot of
money using carma, but if you use it today, in the future if you need a ride, someone will give you a ride back. that's what we call good carma. >> in san francisco, johnathan bloom, abc7 news. >> good karma, indeed. we've assembled a rank of resources for you at abc7news.com. including alternative transit options and realtime traffic maps. you can also download the waze traffic app to navigate the freeways. and follow us on twitter for breaking news updates. stay with abc7 news for the very latest developments on the bart strike. join us for live coverage tomorrow morning starting at 4:00 p.m. with our anchors and traffic reporter. >> authorities have identified the source as bad lettuce that that caused a bad stomach illness. that was in two states. it was a to food processing plant in mexico. but the concerns have not
lessened. we have more. >> it's still a mystery, the source of the cyclospoia outbreak in 14 states. the cdc has sent a team to help with the investigation in texas, one of the hardest-hit states. but after six weeks we know the source, at least in nebraska and iowa. the fda linked it to a stomach flu caused by the parasite. it is linked to salad mix grown in mexico. grown on this farm and served at all red lobster and olive garden restaurants. the fda said their investigation was not implicating consumer packages sold in grocery stores. and the contaminated product is no longer being served. so while investigators believe the outbreak is over, sick people continue to be identified because without proper treatment, symptoms can continue for more than a month. that was richard besser reporting. in all, more than 400 people in 16 states have been sickened by the cyclospora infection. >> the most famous father in the world is taking a bit of time
off from diaper duty. prince william hit the power field yesterday with his brother harry for a charity polo match. young prince george and his mother kate did not make the trip, but prince william told people the little prince likes to move and wiggle, and that he is keeping the first-time parents on their toes. >> next on the sunday morning news, the subtle effects of climate change. we will introduce you to a researcher who is finding warning signs in small creatures on the bay area shoreline. and we have a live look at the golden gate bridge, where you see a foggy bridge. upper 50s right now. temperatures in san francisco will reach 62 today. meteorologist frances dinglasan has your forecast in a few
most people associate climate change with dramatic events like big storms, drought or large chunks of ice disappearing from the arctic. but in most cases the effects are more subtle. here's abc7 news reporter wayne freedman with the researcher who has been looking on a much smaller scale. >> when we hear about the world's rapidly-changing climate, it's natural to assume they are talking about someplace else. we never look for evidence in our own backyard. if we do, would we know where? >> i am looking for a snail. they are called limpets. >> they call her the limpet lady. >> you get used to it. people identify you with the species you are working with. >> it might feel like a stretch to connect sea snails with climate change, but not if you spend time with her along
san francisco bay shore lines. the limpets are fragile creatures that survive in hot sun and cold water, which makes them unique, especially in the changing times. >> limpets are found where land meets the sea. so these animals, on a daily basis, are exposed to both air conditions on the rocks that you and i may see, as well as under water. two environments. >> two extreme environments. the question about these creatures that live in both air and water is how much change can they take? >> in the air they are really susceptible to any future changes in temperature. >> it matters because limpets are like the proverbial canaries in coal mines. brittany has collected them for three years. she's put them through a series of tests to determine how much
of a temperature change they can endure. she measures heart rates, oxygen consumption, metabolism. evidence shows limpets have reached their adaptive limits which renders them vulnerable. >> if they are vulnerable -- >> then a lot of other species might be vulnerable as well. >> on the seacoast, think dominoes. if the limpets disappear because of a changing climate, what's next? along the coast in marin county, wayne freedman, abc7 news. >> all right. at 9:43 we want to give you a quick update about the belmont redwood shores all-stars. they are playing hawaii right know. they are up 1-0 at the top of the third. so that's exciting. meteorologist frances dinglasan joins us a preview of the forecast. >> yes. it is cloudy over most of the bay, including the peninsula. here's a live shot in san jose where we are seeing gray clouds. sunshine will breakthrough and we will see some temperatures come up. but cooler compared to yesterday.
this afternoon the a.l. west leading a's will try to win the rubber game of their series versus the second-place rangers. first pitch is at 1:05. yesterday the a's evened the series, snapping a three-game losing streak. here's the highlights from this morning's sports. >> good morning. baseball top of the order. the a's awesome pitcher tommy malone, a triple in sacramento after allowing six runs in texas. we will start you off with some yo power as in cespedes. delivering in the first inning. matt garza trying to sneak a curveball past him. i don't think so. two-run homer, 17th of the year. 3-0, a's. hand shake time with coco crisp. move to the fifth. gerald parker cruising. ian kinzler down the left-field line. it's going foul. no it's not. that's a solo shot. rangers within a run, 3-2. day game in oakland, the dreaded sun ball. it helps brandon moss in the sixth. martinez loses it, ground-ruled double. didn't lead to a run but this does. bunting in the second. comes up. batting in the seventh. 4-2 a's. top of nine, time to rage. belfour with the high heat.
and swinging as he avoids the pitch. a's win 4-2. division lead now three and a half games over texas. >> you want to get off to a good start. as i said earlier, too, there are times before a good starting pitcher gets, you know, comfortable in doing his thing, you have to chance to score some runs off of him. so we played a little small ball early and cespedes was huge for us. >> giants and rays, scoreless in the second inning. escobar, deep to center off tim lincecum. looks like it is out of here. he makes the catch of the morning. timmy's reaction? i thought it was gone. top of three, brandon crawford. chopper up the gut. scoring francoeur. giants take an early 1-0 lead. the bottom half of the inning, kelly johnson, slow roller. brett fields. lincecum covering and they collide. johnson is safe at first. that would end up being an important play, few batters later, raise with runners on the corners.
zobrist. the chopper to second. can't turn the double play. jose molina scores, makes it 1-1. stays that way into the tenth. walked with the bases loaded. then drew the fastball. over the head of francoeur. desmond jennings score, rays get the win. 2-1. the giants three-game win streak comes to an end and they fall 11 back of the dodgers. pro football hall of fame inducted seven new members yesterday. two with local ties. warren sabin ended with the raiders and larry allen ended his career with the 49ers. phil parcels, cris carter, dave robinson and curley joins the most coveted fraternity in football. alex played twelve years with dallas, two with the 49ers. the eleven time pro bowler will tell you the story of how his career changed after getting dominate bid reggie white one sunday. >> so i got in the weight room and became the strongest man in the nfl. i did it naturally.

blowing around so winds are very light at this point. san francisco it's 55 degrees, 57 in oakland and 57 in san jose. but you still see the marine layer there on the top of the golden gate bridge. so it's cloudy and gray with more cool numbers in santa rosa where fog was reported earlier at 52 degrees. but partly sunny conditions in concord. that's why it's 58 and milder also in livermore at 61 degrees. we are looking towards the west now from emeryville across the bay, the golden gate bridge in the distance, and it's still pretty gray out will. but things are going to change. once you get past the morning clouds, even drizzle and patchy clouds, we will see mostly sunny conditions this afternoon, although temperatures will be light slightly cooler compared to yesterday. then we have a cooling trend that stays with us through midweek. so here's why. we have this area of low pressure, this cool air mass circulating counter clockwise, bringing us a steady onshore flow. we will see a very typical
summertime pattern throughout the week. morning low clouds, afternoon sunshine. but as the cooler air mass moves closer, we will see our coolest numbers probably midweek around wednesday and then we will slowly start to ramp back up again by the end of the work week and into next weekend. it will be nice and mild at gilroy 80. 75 santa clara. look for plenty of sunshine, look for 75 redwood city, cloudy at the coast, partial clearing. 58 pacifica, 50 sunset district, partly cloudy downtown san francisco at 62 degrees. in the north bay, you will find everything you can expect from 58 along the coast, all the way up to 90 in awe coya, and then sunny in calistoga, upper 70s there and mid-70s in sonoma and napa. very comfortable in the east bay. temperatures ranging from mid-60s in richmond all the way to low 70s, 72 fremont and 67 in san leandro, and a few degrees cooler today, but still
warm in the inland valleys. 81 in san ramon. 84 in livermore. if you are travel around the state, plenty ever sunshine in northern california. 93 in chico, 82 in tahoe. look for partly cloudy conditions in los angeles. 75 degrees there. and 70 in san diego. here's a look at your accuweather seven-day forecast. so what you will notice is temperatures are a little bit cooler today. so we are dropping down a few degrees. then we kind of go down a few more degrees into tuesday and wednesday. wednesday probably the coolest day of the week. then thursday and friday we start to ramp back up a little bit warmer. we will be closer to normal by the end of next weekend, but midweek inland numbers are going to be below average by as much as 10 degrees, but along the coast kind of holding steady, upper 50s to near 60. >> and it really does seem leak one of those thing we always have three very definitive climates, and you can just maybe pick which one you want to go to. >> yeah. we have something for everyone.
